Ingredients:  

  • 1 tablespoon Matcha Green Tea

Direction:

Pictured above is a freshly made Matcha Oatmeal with almond milk, pine nuts, almond pieces and sweet red beans.  It is delicious, packed full of nutrients and energizing.

It is very easy to prepare. First, make an oatmeal like you normally would. We put in almond milk just because we like how it tastes. Alternatively, you can use regular milk, coconut milk  or rice milk.

Second, whisk 1 teaspoon of Matcha with 1-2 ounces of water to make a thick/dense matcha green tea and add it to the oatmeal. 

Finally, put some nuts, and/or fruits according to your preference. We like to use pine nuts , cut up almonds and sweet red beans.

Enjoy! 

 

 

Kenya Highlands Black Tea Matcha

Kenya’s highland is one of the best location for tea production. It has got the right altitude, optimum soil and climate conditions for tea growing.  

In recent years, Kenya has become a major producer in the tea trade. Tea farms in Kenya adapt very quickly to new trends and technologies. The black tea matcha is a fine example of what Kenya has to offer. The special tea leave are specifically selected for their tannin and antioxidants count. After the harvest, they are processed in small batches and craftily stone ground into fine powder.

This Kenya Highlands Matcha brews up a very well balanced tea that is smooth, malty, and slightly astringent. It couples with milk/cream very well. 

Black tea Matcha is super rich in antioxidants and fibers. It is less vegetal than green Matcha. For some who don’t like the grassiness of Green Matcha, this Kenya Highlands Black Tea Matcha is a nice alternative.

We highly encourage you to experiment with various quantities, water temperatures, and whisking time until you find the strength that‟s perfect for you.

Matcha Salt

Matcha Salt is a great seasoning salt. Matcha salt is a simple and easy to make. It brings out the “umami” (Japanese for savory flavor) of meat and seafood. Matcha is uniquely flavorful. As a seasoning ingredient, it adds a vegetal and almost seeweed like flavor and natural sweetness to food. It is also not overpowering, it rather compliments your food. Combined with a quality salt, it can really add more depths and make your dish more interesting. 

Here are some things we would like to highlight: 

1. Use a Matcha to salt ratio of 5:1 or a ratio of your liking. 

2. We recommend Using sea salt or rock salt. 

3. Mix them well. 

4. Use Matcha salt as a rub for meat. 

5. Sprinkle Matcha salt on seafood and steak when serving.
